Arnold Schwarzenegger joined his son Patrick at Umami Burger to patch things up and they were “smiling and laughing” with each other, an eyewitness tells HollywoodLife.com
Patrick Schwarzenegger has been the most outspoken of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver‘s children, tweeting about the scandal and changing his name on Twitter to “Patrick Shriver”. But it seems like he is working on forgiving his philandering father, just like Maria suggested. In fact, the duo went to lunch at Umami Burger yesterday and a source tells HollywoodLife.com they “got along amazingly well” and were “smiling and laughing” together.
“Arnold was in a great mood,” says our eyewitness. “He shook hands with people inside the restaurant, signed autographs and took a few photos with fans. His son was also in a great mood, talking and laughing with his father.”
The pair showed up separately and were accompanied by a few police officers. They left together in the same car. “Nobody brought up Maria or the scandal when they were around Arnold and I didn’t hear Patrick and him talk about it at all. They just seemed like a normal father and son. The place was packed and Arnold handled the crowd in a friendly manner. He acted very cool and very nice and couldn’t stop smiling next to his son.”
Patrick has already expressed his love for his father and hopefully this shows that Arnold is taking the right steps in repairing the relationship with his children after the betrayals to his family have come to light in such a public way.
